Dallas College Legislative Priorities

Our 2021 legislative priorities will be updated soon.

​Texas Association of Community Colleges 87th Legislative Session Policy Priorities

 

  • Investing in community colleges
    • The association adopted formula funding recommendations informed by the findings of the Community and Technical College Formula Advisory Committee. However, the CTCFAC concluded its work prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic when expectations for the 87th Legislature were optimistic. Considering current circumstances, TACC recommends an increase in appropriation for core operations to support stabilization of college operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Workforce and economic recovery policy
    • The association recommends supporting the Texas Reskilling & Upskilling through Education initiative, specifically seeking statutory authority to create a state fund to support the program.
